This Matcha starts out as a delightfully spring-green powder with delicate sweet, vibrantly green, and surprisingly floral notes to the aroma. The floral notes bring thoughts of spring-time no matter what time of year it is, and the color of the tea itself helps as well. Upon adding water and giving the Matcha a vigorous whisking, the color changes to a bright bamboo plant green and the floral aroma becomes stronger with an accompaniment of light green notes of broken grass and hay, with a touch of bamboo leaves.
Brewing this Matcha and the traditional style in a bowl gives you a tasting experience of transitions, it starts with a robust kale and cut grass taste, this moves on to sweet hay and bamboo leaves. The finish is a delicate floral note that lingers, truly this is a spring like Matcha.
